GreenMan Theatre to hold auditions for 'Murder on the DeLorean Express' murder mystery

Editor's note: Update for change in audition time to 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17.

Actors who are just dying to play a role in a comedic murder mystery are invited to audition for GreenMan Theatre Troupe's "Murder on the DeLorean Express."

Auditions will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17, and 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 18, at First United Methodist Church of Elmhurst, 232 S. York St.

Written and directed by Justin Vidovic, "Murder on the DeLorean Express" is a murder mystery that travels through time. Doc Green and Murty have been friends across time. But when Murty's marriage is ending, Doc Green realizes he's to blame, and he must travel back in time to Murty's wedding to sever his friendship with Murty forever. But changing the past results in ... murder!

Can Doc Green rescue Murty's marriage? If he does, will Murty lose his best friend forever?

According to Vidovic, GreenMan Theatre's annual murder mystery "will offer the chance to do comedy, action and suspense, all in one show that features familiar and loved characters."

"Murder on the DeLorean Express" will showcase the talents of 14 actors.

Auditions will be cold reads. Those wishing to audition to sing in the show should be ready to sing "The Power of Love" to a karaoke track that will be available. Or auditioners may choose to sing a 1980s ballad of their choice, "sung painfully, in their worst bad karaoke style," Vidovic said.

GreenMan Theatre's "Murder on the DeLorean Express" murder mystery dinner will be held on Feb. 23-24, and March 1-3.
